Krishna….I tell you, Krishna is the most time-tested enlightened master, and Gita is the most time-tested teaching, because even while he was delivering, the listener is not ready to believe. He has to go to the extreme of showing the Vishwaroopa to make the listener believe, to establish his identity, credibility.
Bhagawan has to show Vishwaroopa thrice:
- Once for Shishupala;
- Once in the Kauravas’ Court; and,
- Once for Arjuna.
Of course, several times he showed he is divine: When he liberated Karna; When he gave blessings to Bheeshma; and, The moment he took birth, to tell Vasudeva and Devaki, he showed his divinity.
But, his Vishwaroopa he showed thrice. If you see the timing, it is almost to make those persons understand who is standing in front of them, with whom are they playing. Arjuna was so strong, continuously questioning. Finally, Krishna has to show his Vishwaroopa to make Arjuna understand the principles he is teaching. But, even then, in course of time, always this science gets lost.
एवं परम्पराप्राप्तमिमं राजर्षयो विदुः । स कालेनेह महता योगो नष्टः परन्तप ॥
“Evam paramparaa praaptham imam raja rishayo vidhuhu |
Sa kaaleneha mahatha Yogo nashtah Paranthapa ||
“This handed down thus in regular succession, the royal sages knew,
This Yoga, by long lapse of time, has been lost here, O Parantapa.”
Please understand, in course of time, the tsunami of your regular incompletions takes away your strength of Completion and the qualities born of the space of Completion.
Please listen! Just yesterday we handled one important situation where a few people have lost the power of Completion. When the tsunami of incompletions is awakened in you…. Please understand, money, power, women, wealth, these all are not cause or reason for incompletion, be very clear! Don’t beat the chair if you hate the person! No! Money is not a reason. Power is not a reason. Wealth is not a reason. Lust is not a reason. The only reason for the tsunami of incompletion is we entertaining those patterns. We entertaining those patterns! Because, the same money, I don’t see, is making somebody else incomplete, somebody else to do this same kind of activity. So many Mahants were shocked, ‘How can people lose authenticity?’ It is possible! Whatever pattern you are carrying, when there is a huge volume of cotton inside and the fire comes near, it catches. If it is just banana leaf, it won’t catch fire. So, whatever pattern you are carrying inside, that responds to the world.
If you are caught in the money, money pattern, money engram, when money comes in front of you, you lose everything, you lose whatever you know as you. Same way, if you are caught in the lust pattern, the other gender is there in front of you, you lose everything, you just lose whatever you know as you. If you are caught in the hunger for power, the moment power comes in front of you, you just lose everything. You think, ‘Just this one decision I will compromise; then the power will be with me. After that I will become authentic again.’ No! Anything which comes to you by compromising Authenticity, will continue to be with you only if you continue to compromise your authenticity. If money comes to you by compromising your authenticity, that money will continue to stay with you only by compromising your authenticity. If power comes to you by compromising Authenticity, that power will continue to stay with you only as long as you continue to compromise your authenticity. If money comes to you because of your authenticity, how many people ever try to take it away, they won’t be able to take it away! HAHAHAHAHAHA! If power comes to you, certain glory comes to you, certain grace happens to you because of your power of Authenticity, how many people ever try to disgrace you, it is simply impossible! Impossible!
Recently I read an analysis and survey article on the Internet; means, the people who write articles after analyzing, surveying different data, the freelancers. Of course, their articles are picked up in journals also, the print media also, the freelancers. The article lists the people who are not shaken by the scandals and rumours and gossips, the top ten international celebrities who are not shaken by any of the rumours, scandals, who could not be disgraced by any happenings around them, who continue to be successful. The eighth name is “Paramahamsa Nithyananda”! HAHAHAHA! They are stating, ‘These are the ten people, no rumours, scandals could disgrace them or could stop their lives.’ They don’t know the science. They wrote by doing some analysis and study. I am now giving you the science, the secret. I am giving you the secret: If any money, power, anything comes to you because of your authenticity, it can never be taken away from you! If grace happens to you because of your authenticity, it can never be taken away from you! That is why I am saying, anything which happens after enlightenment cannot be snatched away from you by anybody, because enlightenment itself cannot be snatched away!
Listen! Sometimes when people do some immoral, illegal activity, who were good earlier, when those situations are brought in front of me, this is the only reason I find – Yogo Nashta Paranthapaha! In course of time, because of non-practice, the power of Completion gives way, and the tsunami of incompletion takes over you. Understand, the power of Completion gives way, the tsunami of incompletion takes you over. The power of Completion when it loses power, when the power of incompletion takes you over, please listen, you lose the very identity of you. When you lost you, you lost everything, because now you have to be searching who you are. Anything can be lost, but not who you are. Listen! Anything can be lost, but not who you are. Losing who you are is too costly a missing.
In English there is a proverb: If money is lost, nothing is lost; if health is lost, something is lost; if your character is lost – I won’t say “character”, I will say “authenticity” – if your authenticity is lost, everything is lost! Why do you think in our Sangha I am so meticulous about even where you sit? I always insist, let the Mahants sit in the front row, then Kotharis sit, then Thanedars sit. I always insist. You may be thinking, ‘Why? What is there in sitting?’ You don’t know! Everything matters for your authenticity. Because, I have seen in Mahanirvani Peetha, the whole inner image of a person changes the moment he is initiated! The moment he is given that seat, that gaddhi, he redesigns the concept about himself, he redevelops the concept about himself, he recreates about himself. That is why this big….all these marks, bhasma, rudrakshas. These all make you authentic to who you are, what you want to be, what you are, what you want to be, constantly reminding yourself and others, aligning yourself and others’ experience of you, Inner Image, Outer Image, Others’ Image, and Life Image, aligning all the four. All these are required. All these are required. And all this reminds you and takes care you don’t fall from Yoga, Yogo Nashta Paranthapa does not happen in your life. Let the Yoga not be lost. Let the authenticity not be lost. Let the Yoga be not lost. Let the authenticity be not lost.
Listen! In course of time, when people see money, when people see power, Yoga gets lost. Sometimes, due to non-practice also, Yoga gets lost. Means, operating from the space of Completion is Yoga. Living and radiating the space of Completion, living and radiating the space of Completion is also Yoga. Listen! Yogo Nashta Paranthapa! Completion is the only way you can get out of the lost life. Please understand, unable to retain your inspiration is nothing but life lost. Unable to retain the inspiration is nothing but losing completely yourself.
Just yesterday, I was telling a devotee, ‘When life happens to you, and if you feel you are smaller, you lose inspiration. But ability to stand with life in all its power and glory is life. Yogo Nashta Paranthapa! Yoga is lost when you don’t stand to the life. Understand, every night Completion will make sure the incompletions don’t settle down on you as a powerful layer, and, suddenly, one day, you need to wake up and complete the whole thing. No! Every night Completion! Every night Completion, so that the incompletions does not settle down in you as layer, as sediment, incompletions don’t settle down in you as layer, as sediment. Yoga…Yoga…Yoga means operating from the space of Completion. Anything can be lost, but not Yoga. When you allow the incompletions to take over, when the incompletions become more and more powerful, slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly but steadily, Yoga is lost.
I tell you, your every-day action is responsible either for extraordinary miracle or extraordinary accident. Neither miracle nor accident happens over a second. Neither miracle nor accident happens just like that. No! Whether it is the going up or going down, it happens because of your every-day activity. Nothing comes as surprise, nothing comes as sudden.
Listen! Listen! Completion….every day when you practice Completion and fall asleep, your whole night Dreaming and Deep Sleep state aligns your unconsciousness to your life, to your authenticity. Every day your Deep Sleep and Dream state supports you, supplying extraordinary powers to you, the next day to be more authentic. Understand, unknown part of you is extraordinary powers of you. If you take the blessings and support of the unknown part of you, it is extraordinary powers’ space. Every night when you complete and fall asleep, the power of Completion, next day morning when you wake up you are there alive, your unconscious and sub-conscious supporting you to be more and more authentic….to be more and more authentic. It is Authenticity, it is Authenticity that is life. Authenticity, that is life, understand!
Bring Authenticity to your life. It is Authenticity that is life. Practice Completion continuously, and don’t lose living out of Completion, don’t lose your Authenticity, don’t lose your Authenticity. It is unfortunate, human-beings lose their Authenticity, in course of time their inspiration, energy for Completion, to live in the space of Completion. Listen! Life happens, life happens when you continue to operate from the space of Completion.
